Winter '22/'23 Monthly Shows  

Hi Friends! 

We're happy to now be mostly past Covid restrictions and back out doing our thing. We're hosting a Country Night at The Carousel Cocktail Lounge each 1st Saturday of the month from 10p-2am. They have a great dance floor, big bar, darts and its just a good old time on Spenard. 

We're also hosting a Bluegrass Night at Van's Dive Bar every Last Thursday of the month. This is our neighborhood bar  which we know and love, and it's a great place to meet up with some friends and see some LIVE music! 

We're also looking forward to the Anchorage Folk Festival coming up in January of 2023. We'll be opening for "Mile Twelve" at the Beartooth Theaterpub on January 21st, 2023. As well as on the folk festival main stage at the UAA Wendy Williamson Auditorium on Jan 27th at 8:30pm.

CD Release shows, Album Reviews, Chart Topper 

Summer in Alaska has been incredible so far, and some even venture to say too hot... so hot we had to breakdown and buy a fan for our house. The album reviews have also been HOT! Hearth Music is doing a great job getting the new CD "CITIZEN" out to radio and press promoters around the U.S. We even topped the FAR charts, which is based in Austin, TX, but is a national chart called the Freeform American Roots chart at #3! This puts us above awesome artists like Chris Stapleton, Darrel Scott, Dwight Yoakum, and Whitley Morgan. Some review highlights so far are: 
  • "If the legends are watching from above they're well pleased, Todd Grebe & the talented musicians that comprise Cold Country are the real deal and Citizen should be an album everyone's talking about." ~ No Depression 
  • "Todd Grebe & Cold Country are just one of many but they, on this showing, are one of the best.”~ Lonesome Highway
  • "One hard hitting, hot honky tonk combo... Citizen Has my vote."~ The Green Man Review
  • "Citizen" is a pleasant work of storytelling in the country vein. Grebe has a distinct voice, well suited for the genre; it's weary and wary, but hopeful." ~ Country Standard Time
  • “Todd Grebe & Cold Country’s Citizen is incredibly enjoyable from beginning to end. Smart lyrics, fine musicianship, Grebe’s endearing vocals, and spot-on production make it a new classic. Go pick it up; it’s a pure delight.” ~ Pop Shifter
Our CD Release shows are now starting. Here's some places to catch us in the next few weeks: (Check out our full schedule HERE) Don't forget to pick up the new CD either at our website store.. or you can get a physical copy through CD
Hope to see you at one of our shows!!
